Uruguayans in Moscow

From September 20 to 25, President of the General Assembly and Senate of Uruguay and Vice President of Uruguay Rodolfo Nin Nivoa was in Moscow as the leader of a visiting delegation of congressmen from the South American country. During their stay in the Russian capital, the delegation met with Federation Council President Sergei Mironov and Deputy Chair of the State Duma Svetlana Zhurova as well as the international affairs committees of both chambers of the Russian parliament. In honor of the delegation’s visit, Uruguay’s ambassador in Moscow, Dr. Jorge Meyer Long, hosted a reception at his offi cial residence, the historic mansion known as Shekhtel House. The delegation’s trip represents only the latest chapter in the 151-year history of diplomatic relations between Uruguay and Russia. Shown above (l to r) are Jorge Meyer Long, Ambassador of Uruguay; Senator Rodolfo Nin Novoa, President of the Congress of Uruguay, and his wife; Nubia Pirone de Meyer, wife of the Uruguayan ambassador. On the wall in the background is a portrait of Uruguayan national hero Jose Gervasio Artigas, considered “the father of Uruguayan independence.”
